Nobody could have predicted how Harry Shum Jr. made it to Hollywood. He definitely didn’t take the typical path, and even when he tells it, his story sounds too kismet to be true. Born in Costa Rica to Chinese immigrant parents, the actor moved to San Francisco, then Grover Beach—“a town no one really knows”—when he was nine, and immediately began working at his parents’ Chinese restaurant. Growing up, he was learning English, struggling to make friends, and had trouble finding his footing—until he literally found it through dance. He moved to L.A. and scored a gig as a backup dancer for Beyoncé. Then came Glee and Shadowhunters. Then came Crazy Rich Asians. And here we are.

Luke Baines has been cast in the recurring role of Jonathan Morgenstern, the main villain in the remaining episodes of the third and final season of Freeform’s fantasy drama series Shadowhunters.

 

Previously hiding behind the identify of Sebastian Verlac, played by Will Tudor, Baines’ character was reborn at the end of the spring finale and is the true form of Clary’s (Katherine McNamara) brother. Jonathan’s return will present Clary and the Shadowhunters with a new level of evil that they can’t even imagine.

It was a lingering question following the spring finale as to who would play the character. Executive producers had discussed in previous interviews that Tudor would not be playing Jonathan.

Based on the Mortal Instrumentsnovels, the fantasy drama will end its run in 2019 with a 12-episode season. The current third season is based on the fourth and fifth books in the series. Its two-hour finale will be based on the sixth and final installment.

Shadowhunters is produced by Constantin Film. The series stars Katherine McNamara as Clary Fray, Dominic Sherwood as Jace Wayland, Alberto Rosende as Simon Lewis, Emeraude Toubia as Isabelle Lightwood, Matthew Daddario as Alec Lightwood, Isaiah Mustafa as Luke Garroway, Alisha Wainwright as Maia Roberts, and Harry Shum Jr. as Magnus Bane.

Baines is best known for playing the serial killer in Wes Craven’s final film The Girl in the Photographs. He’ll next be seen in David Robert Mitchell’s Under the Silver Lake, starring Andrew Garfield, Riley Keough and Topher Grace, set for release in December. He is repped by Authentic Talent & Literary Management and APA.

Shadowhunters fans are the best fans there are.

After the shocking news that the series had been cancelled after just three seasons, fans from all over headed to social media to share just why that was a HUGE mistake.

“i’m really mad. if this is the last shadowhunters run, that means a malec marriage, simon and izzy’s relationship, raphael’s return, & more will be shoved into 12 episodes to make fans happy. this isn’t what we want. we want this gradually and realistically #saveshadowhunters,” fan Melwrites.

Not only will the final episodes feel and be rushed, taking away the show also takes away a safe haven.

Kione adds, “One year ago I had reached the lowest point in my life, one year ago I hated my job, my life and myself. One year ago the only thing that pulled me off that dark pit was discovering Shadowhunters and waiting for season 2B…You are not taking away my lifeline.”
